So Ben, neither "mendacious", "rabid", "blind" or "anti-Apple". Just diverted from the true[?]cost comparisons by raw data taken from this very website. Baaaaaaaa.
Ok relocated, happy to accept your explanation and apologies for any negativity towards you AnotherJoe on the other hand....

Good on you Ben for apologising. Serious question; why do you need an extra 32gb of tunes on a phone? That's got to be days-worth of continuous listening.

So you are happy to pay around £600 a year for a mobile phone ?
I pay £312 a year for 300mins,unlt texts, 1GB month with a Hox - and I thought that was pretty steep.
Then again, I pay £97/month to sky....

Is that directed at me? I paid £400 up front and pay £26 / month, so exactly the same as you. Except I get unlimited calls, as well as unlimited texts and 1GB of data.
How much did you pay up front for your phone?
Can you tell us where you get your figures from? Not only this one, but you quoted £1080 for a 16gb iphone 5 the other day.
Exactly. In addition to use while exercising, I go on occasional long train journeys for work. I can't predict what mood I might be in, and appreciate a choice from a selection of old favourites and a selection of new / little played music.
I bought some new heaphones recently. Until then I had put my music on at 128k. When I put it back up to 256k I found cutting music very difficult! I will appreciate putting it all (and a bit more, given apps and photos) back on

Although more memory is good if you afford it I thought one of the advantages of having an iThingy is that you don't need to store everything on your device ... You just download 256k quality music from the iCloud

I've been using iCloud and Music Match. Its great as long as you are not driving outside of the city centre. I still have one of the original 02 simplicity tariffs with genuine unlimited internet, I clear 2GB per month with no charges or 'fair usage' policy

my Hox was 0 upfront
(If you call £26 a month free)
I was looking at TMobile website where the 64GB is £219 up front and £41/month = £1203 (1GB data per month)
I'd agree if you was gonna get one - the smart choice is the 64GB. You wouldnt want to be thinking "I'd wish I'd gone for the bigger one" for the next 2 years...
Have you rung them up and spoken to cancelations? If you threaten to go to virgin I bet you can get a lot off of that.

The Iphone5 is a good example. My Htc One X has a much bigger screen, cpu twice as fast,
Shock horror report that specs and CPU speed aren't the be all and end all...
The scores in the IT Pro article are not right, but it does not change the fact the iPhone 5 looks set to be pretty fast. Geekbench takes in to account processor and memory speed, so i would assume poor read speeds from cheap micro sd cards were to blame for IT Pros poor scores. In real life, the s3 pips the iPhone 5, but the 5 is faster than the One X. Considering the power savings from running dual cores, that is an impressive feat!*
*Assuming the scores are legit. It is possible to fake geekbench uploads...
I have been mentioning a higher mhz doesn't mean its faster on other threads , and no two chipsets are the same e.g. AMD and Intel
If you look at the history of Intel and AMD since the single cores cpu its pretty clear its not all about speed of the cpu
